Comparison of software development processes.
Sept. 20, 2012
This time I created for you a little story, you might like it.
Once upon a time there was a Customer who meet with several development teams.
The Customer wasn't able to pick one team, so he setted up a match with all of them, and the Winning Team will win the hole customer's portfolio.
Curiously, each team informed that they will use a different development methodology. Everyone started at the same time ... while some moved directly to develop after a little customer's introduction, others meet with him and make some questions.
Of those who stayed chatting with the client, some developers maked requirements quickly and the rest made requirements using arduous and endless meetings to define the product specs to develop ...
After a few days we have the first teams that presents their final product. Those who used light requirements begin development and get meeting weekly with the client. Those who use hard requirements were still working on specs.
After three months most of the teams deliver the product, including those who made light requirements too. The group behind hard requirements is still working hard behind closed doors.
After a few months some groups surrender and deliver the product as it is.
In a couple of months more, the more strict teams finish and deliver ...
Go now and see the result...

Agile patterns and anti-patterns that I was finding.
Jan. 23, 2012
This time I bring to you a resume of all agile patterns and anti-patterns that I was finding in the way. I collected them from
own and others experience. In many cases these were my own errors, and when I discovered them, they were added to the collection.
I thought that was interesting to put them nicknames, to illustrate a little more the problem's root.
This is a pre-view of the Book I'll write.
I hope that this patterns will be for you so userful, didactyc as funny.
I wait for your feedback!
- Photogenic Agile .
Is Agile for the photo. He demonstrate to be part of the Agile movement, but don't understand it at all.
Agile anti christ.
This is convinced that the Agilism is not good, but never tried it. And those who make it work is by good luck.
- Agile as a slogan.
Names agilism to sell, but behind closed doors ... don't uses it at all.
- Agile all in one.
There is a person with the role "Scrum Developer Master Owner."
- Feudal Agile
The client make estimations.

The Stand Up is a military report, with penalties, reviews and push-ups.

Everything must be perfect. If a post-it is twisted, he straightens it.
